Grew up in the 1960's not far from the highlands. We came for our son's graduation from Emory. Very chill atmosphere. More expensive than when I was a child, but it still felt... read more

On a whim, I drove out here on my last night in ATL. It was touted as a place to eat, shop, and drink. Mostly, I just saw lots and lots of people. The area is picturesque, surrounded by lovely neighborhoods. But, the parking situation was abysmal. Add to this the fact that there were about 5 highly gimmicky eateries,... More

If you're visiting Atlanta, don't miss walking around all of the intown neighborhoods-- Virginia Highlands, Inman Park, Grant Park, Candler Park are all wonderful pockets of lively street activity, beautiful outdoor spaces, local shops and good food. I grew up down the street from Virginia Highlands. In the past ten years it has lost some of the original spunk and... More

The Highlands consists of 3 clusters of interesting places separated by short stretches of older residential areas. You may want to drive between them; parking is on-street and can become difficult during events, but it's worth the visit. The shops are small and interesting and it's a pedestrian friendly area.

We will definitely go back! We enjoyed looking at the eclectic shops in a neighborhood type setting. Some high end, some exotic and some were antique shops. We shopped and stopped to eat at the oldest tavern in Atlanta and it was top notch! Different food items and great service. Parking costs $2 for an hour at the meters on... More

I like driving into VH and parking the car and just bar/restaurant hoping. If you come early there are some great boutiques and neat things to see... VH has some mom and pop restaurants which are like hidden gems and the people that hang around the area seem to be very friendly.

Virginia Highlands was the hip place to go in the 90s but then all the hop people moved there, grew up and turned it into an "in-town" suburbia. Still some good place but far more sanitized than it was

and when you're ready for a bite, there's a slew of restaurants to choose from. Parking is not great, but the side-streets will do.

If you want to spend an afternoon or evening strolling and sniffing out lots of little shops or quaint places to eat, drink, or just get ice cream go here. It's definitely a fresh breath of air compared to the new malls, strip developments, etc. This area dates back over seventy years and has seen a great transition during the... More
